The Omaha World-Herald reports Nebraska to the Big Ten may be announced soon:
Numerous media sources in Big Ten country and beyond were reporting Wednesday that Big Red would be joining the Big Ten, becoming the league’s 12th member along with such schools as Ohio State, Iowa and Michigan. Most authoritative was the Chicago Tribune, which reported that an unnamed source confirmed the Big Ten will be inviting Nebraska. Such invitations rarely are discussed unless a decision has been made to accept.
Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman also weighed in Wednesday, indicating he thought there would be “significant movement” on NU’s conference affiliation within 48 hours.
Wednesday’s developments followed a Big 12 source telling The World-Herald Tuesday that Nebraska would be a member of the Big Ten as early as week’s end.
